Initial Access to the Network Camera

Check Network Settings

The Network Camera can be connected either before or immediately after software installation onto the Local Area Network. The Administrator should complete the network settings on the configuration page, including the correct subnet mask and IP address of the gateway and the DNS Servers. Ask your network administrator or Internet service provider for the details. If any setting is entered incorrectly and you cannot proceed with setting up the Network Camera, restore the factory settings following the steps in the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the Appendix.

Add Password to Prevent Unauthorized Access

The default Administrator’s password is blank and the Network Camera initially will not ask for any password. The Administrator should immediately assign a new password as a matter of prudent security practice. Once the Administrator’s password is saved,

the Network Camera will ask for the user’s name and password before each access. The Administrator can set up a maximum of twenty (20) user accounts. Each user can access the Network Camera except to perform system configuration. Some critical functions such as system configuration, user administration, and software upgrades are accessible only by the Administrator. The user name for the Administrator is permanently assigned as “root”. Once the password is changed, the browser will display an authentication window to ask for the new password. Once the password is set, there is no provision to recover the

Administrator’s password. The only option is to restore to the original factory default settings.

How to Use

Installing Plug-in

For the initial access to the Network Camera in Windows, the web browser may prompt for permission to install a new plug-infor the Network Camera. Permission request depends on the Internet security settings of the user’s PC or notebook. If the highest security level is set, the computer may

prohibit any installation and execution attempt.

Client Settings

There are two settings for the client side:

Media Options to determine the type of media to be streamed and Protocol Optionswhich allows choice of connection protocol between client and server. There are two protocol choices to optimize your usage – UDP and TCP.

The UDP protocol allows for morereal-timeaudio and video streams. However, some packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be obscured. TheTCP protocol allows for less packet loss and produces a more accurate video display. The downside with this protocol is that thereal-timeeffect is worse than that with the UDP protocol. If no special need is required, UDP protocol is recommended. Generally speaking, the client’s choice will be in the order of UDP – TCP.

After the Network Camera is connected successfully, Protocol Option will indicate the selected protocol. The selected protocol will be recorded in the user's PC and will be used for the next connection. If the network environment is changed, or the user wants to let the web browser detect again, manually select the UDP protocol, save, and return HOME tore-connect.

Digital Output

Click on ON, the digital output of the Network Camera will be triggered. Or, clicking onOFF can let the digital output turn into normal state.
